I'm sure everyone is familiar with the age old holiday song that counts down the days till Christmas called 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'. For the most part I think I know the lyrics to the carol, but there are some parts that I don't know. What I do know is the verse that names the first five days which consists of a partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three french hens, four calling birds and "FIVE GOLD RINGS". Well, in light of the upcoming holiday, I wanted to do something festive so here is how to draw two turtle doves, step by step. These doves are actually very pretty and have a tanish tint their feathers. I love the markings behind the necks and then colored edges along the wings and tail ends. Oddly, I really enjoyed drawing these turtle doves, but when I was done I was stumped on what type of background to give the concept. After careful thought I felt the glow of a moon with pine trees and falling snow would best suit the mood for this Christmas themed tut. I do hope you enjoy this turtle doves. You can actually create a background that fits the song if you like. Anyways, enjoy and meet me back here in a few with other tuts for you all to enjoy and learn from.
